Director and shareholder disputes

Being a director and/or a shareholder is an accomplish that most people aim for. You have worked so hard to get to the top of your business, or have started one from scratch. But what happens when things go wrong with your co-director or shareholder?  How do you have those (probably) very uncomfortable conversations at every board meeting or AGM? Being a business ourselves, we understand the importance of ensuring things run smoothly and that that business doesn’t get affected at the end of the day. We advise all our clients confidentially, and give you clear, honest advice on your legal position. We will always explore all the necessary avenues to try and resolve any dispute, but if necessary, we will bring or defend any court action that is required.

The same applies to claims that may be brought by liquidators. If you have recently decided to wind your company down, the liquidator has the right to investigate the financial running of the business. If there are any discrepancies or concerns, that could involve a claim for malfeasance or breach of fiduciary duty.

No matter what happens, we will advise and advocate for you every step of the way. We will give you frank and honest advice setting out all options open to you. We provide our services on a fixed fee basis, and are clear and up front about your costs. If you are successful in your claim, you might be entitled to have these repaid. Get in contact with our specialist director and shareholder dispute solicitors today to discuss your options.
